Next Meetup

The only nonfiction writers workshop in the NY/NJ area, we are a supportive group devoted to all areas of nonfiction — memoir, journalism, opinion, essays, short- and long-form articles, blog posts — driven by the belief that truth can be as compelling as page-turning fiction. Two members have completed book-length memoirs, workshopping one chapter at a time. We meet on the second and fourth Mondays of each month from 6:30 to 9 PM, one block from the Grove Street PATH station. We don’t do prompts. At each workshop we review two or three works, depending on length. Members must pick a date in advance to submit. If this is your first time attending the Nonfiction Workshop, please give us your email address when prompted so you can receive our discussion guidelines.

What we're about

Jersey City Writers is a community of dedicated scribes who seek to develop and explore their craft by interacting with other writers. We inspire and support each other to be the best writers we can be in a fun and open social setting.

All genres are welcome. We encourage you to finish your play, your novel or your short story. Stop by and bond with other writers who understand the complicated, yet satisfying process of creating something from nothing.

If you are a local writer seeking inspiration, support and accountability…come join us!
